Mr. Claus started out litigating in the federal courts and traveled year around. He has had cases all across the United States. After the years he decided to settle down and has since made Las Vegas his home. Mr. Claus has been practicing law in Nevada for over 16 years.
Since the start of his state practice here in Nevada, he has successfully defended every kind of criminal case from Capital murder (Death Penalty) to misdemeanors. He has had numerous high-profile cases that have been covered by multiple major news stations including Fox, ABC News, CBS News, 13 Action News, The Review Journal, The Las Vegas Sun, 8 news now, The New York Post, USA Today, and many more.
Mr. Claus went to college for accounting, engineering, and the law and received his law degree
with honors from Lewis and Clark Law School. Since starting his practice he has become one of the most formidable opponents to the State District Attorneys' Office and has successfully overturned wrongful convictions at the Nevada Supreme Court, exposed corrupt police officers. Mr. Claus has created case law that is still the defining work in areas such as self-defense, and is now known in the Las Vegas community as the "Peoples Advocate".
Mr. Claus is also respected by his peers and was awarded the Presidential Commendation Award by the Nevada Attorneys For Criminal Justice for his unwavering devotion to his clients and to the law. Eventually, he was nominated and voted by his fellow defense attorneys to become the president of this elite group of defense attorneys. As president of the Nevada Attorneys For Criminal Justice, Mr. Claus was recognized again for his Outstanding Service and Leadership of the Nevada Attorneys for Criminal Justice. Amongst other major awards, he was named the 2022 Best Litigation Attorney.
